How You Learn = How We Train

We know your time is valuable. We also know that there is an endless amount of training requirements for first responders. 

Wilderness Chaplains uses these guiding principles to keep our training programs useful, meaningful, and valuable:


"Need to Know" Matters Most 

We won't waste your time with learning something if we can't justify when or why you'll need to know it.


Skills Save Lives

Your time should be spent learning, practicing, and refining your skills.


Respect the Research

While it is fun to talk about new ideas, we want methods and models that have been field tested and peer-reviewed. If we can't cite a study or refer to a reputable source, we will not use it in our curriculum.


Learn From Experience

Our trainers and responders have valuable experience to share, and so do you. Be prepared to share your stories, ask questions, and learn from each other.
